Program Registration

Program Registration 
For registration information, call The Center for Bloodless Medicine and Surgery (CBMS) at 551-996-2963. Patients may enter our program in a number of ways:

  • Patient Request
    Any patient can call for an appointment with a CBMS nurse who will meet with you to discuss your medical needs and recommend the appropriate specialists in the program.
     
  • Physician Referral
    Upon referral from a physician, the CBMS nurse  will help to plan and coordinate your bloodless care and will also explain all possible alternatives to blood transfusions.
     
  • Emergency Room
    ER staff members are fully trained in providing appropriate treatment to those seeking bloodless care, and will, upon request, automatically call the Nurse Manager from The Center for Bloodless Medicine and Surgery who will consult with your physician(s)should you have a crisis.

    If you are being admitted through the ER, at the time that the admissions registrar completes the admission process, you will be asked if you refuse blood transfusions even if in a life and death situation.  If you answer "yes", the CBMS nurse on call will be paged immediately.
     
  • Advance Directive
    If a patient presents an advance (medical) directive for blood refusal when admitted to the hospital The Center for Bloodless Medicine and Surgery will be notified. If the advance directive is on file The Health Information Department or The Center for Bloodless Medicine and Surgery will retrieve it upon request. Always ask for The Center for Bloodless Medicine and Surgery to be contacted about your admission.
     
  • Pre-admission testing
    If you come to the hospital for pre-admission testing, when the admissions registrar is completing the pre-admission registration, you will be asked if you refuse a blood transfusion.  if you answer "yes" the CBMS nurse will be paged.
     
  • Pre-admission registration
    Some patients are registered over the phone for an upcoming procedure.  The registrar will ask about blood refusal during the phone interview.  If you answer "yes" the CBMS nurse will be paged.

In all cases, we do our best to identify all patients who want to be enrolled in our Bloodless Medicine and Surgery Program as early as possible in their course of treatment.
